What Style of BBQ do you teach?
See answer on Konrad's Pro Pitmaster Blog

What Do I need to bring to class?
Clothing appropriate for the weather.  Layers are best as the weather can change and we move in and out of shelter.  A pen that will work in all weather conditions.  We provide a class manual that covers the class, to keep note taking to a minimum.

I Cook on a (fill in the blank) do you?
Our class is not aimed at a specific cooker.  We cook on several different cookers in class.  Students always get all their questions answered as we have experience cooking on almost every style available.  We help with problems and offer advice on how to avoid problems.  Students with this concern always leave happy as do all our students, guaranteed.

Rain Cancellation Policy?
We cook in all weather conditions.  We will offer a make up class if the class is cancelled due to a disaster declaration or if the state patrol advises against travel.

Can I Bring my cooker to class?
You are welcome to bring your cooker.  Most students don't.  If you do please contact us well ahead of time to make sure we have space and for a list of supplies to bring.

How many students per class?

We limit class size to Depending on location.  Monroe is 12 Students, Most other classes are 25.  This insure everyone gets their questions answered and there is enough time for each student.

Do I need an expensive cooker?

A lot of award winning BBQ has been created with the classic Weber 22.5" Kettle.  These can be found on Craigslist used for very reasonable prices or even for free.  The "real" entry level smokers are the UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker) and the WSM (Weber Smokey Mountain).  The offset pit we use is a Lang.  These consistently do well at the elite levels of competition yet cost a fraction of the prices of other vanity pits.  Beyond that spending more money should get you ALL three things: maintains temperature, spare parts availability for the life of the cooker, more capacity.  If you do not get all three you'll regret it.  See our equipment guide on the links page for more information and choices.  The house brand  grills and smokers in the membership big box warehouse will almost always fail the parts availability test.

Is Prior Experience Required?

No! Our classes are designed so that everyone from the complete novice to the experienced cook will improve their barbecue skills.

BBQ Corporate Team Building

After years in the corporate world Konrad is very familiar with team building events.  The added benefit is the team building is renewed with every BBQ after the class. For details and pricing contact Konrad at (479) 209-4499.

Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions.  These are the result of teaching thousands of students.

We DO NOT accept Credit Card Payments from International Students.  International students will need to make payment arrangements other than credit card.  This includes Canada and Mexico.

We work with students to reschedule or allow another to attend in their place if the are unable to attend.  Reschedules require 14 days minimum notice to avoid a late change fee. 

Classes are subject to a minimum enrollment.  If minimum enrollment is not achieved the student will be offered a refund or rescheduled. This has not happened in over 5 years. 

Payment in full is required to reserve your space.  We cook regardless of the weather, in other words no rain checks. Prices are for classes at our location on our schedule.  We are happy to quote for special classes and locations.  Refunds are only available if we cancel a class.

Gift certificates are valid until used for the face value.  We guarantee the cost of a class for one year from the date of purchase of a gift certificate. What that means is if we increase the price and the gift certificate is more than a year old, the student will owe the difference.

Pictures are at the discretion on the instructor.  No recording of any kind including audio and video are not permitted.  The content of the class is copyright by BBQHOG.COM LLC and may not be redistributed in any form without written permission.

Our company is listed as a wedding planner with AmEx.  If you question your Credit Card bill with the credit card issuer then,  your ONLY option to attend class is to pay the full price plus $50 in CASH. Sorry been there done that and AmEx especially is a nightmare.  Our advice don't use AmEx and call us first with questions.

We prosecute fraudulent charge backs. We reserve the right to make changes on an as needed basis.
